"Imagine you had told Republicans in December, 2008 that three years from then, when Barack Obama would be running for re-election, the country would still be mired in the economic doldrums, with unemployment at 8.6 percent and job creation barely keeping up with increases in population. 'Great!' they'd say. 'There's no way we could lose the 2012 election!' Yet here we are, with the party about to choose between one terribly flawed, unlikeable candidate and a second terribly flawed, unlikeable candidate." ]editor's note: Once again, a prediction of election results that completely discounts a major player in the mix, just because he allegedly "can't win!" - SAT] (12/13/11)
